These guys are hard to catch, and harder to photograph. I managed to sneak up on this one getting some early morning sun and get a photo shots before it disappeared into the brush.

Hard to catch? They much be as evil in Arizona as they are here! j/k These guys love to bite, beautiful snakes though. I have saved my fair share of them in Mississippi, they have a weird myth or wives tale attached to them that they chase you down and whip you to death with their tales. Don’t know how myth got started, but people will always try to kill them because of it.
